“I recently had Defy do a running assessment to help me find what was causing some discomfort in my knees when I run and do certain exercises. Jared was great to work with. He is extremely knowledgeable [...] and he quickly found issues that were contributing to discomfort. He explained everything in detail while doing the assessment and gave me some initial tips to work on while he prepares a more in depth personalized plan. I found the assessment to be extremely valuable and would highly recommend it. The facility is also very nice. It's bright and airy and the staff is very friendly."

“Our family members are regular clients of Defy. Laura and Jared have created an amazing team that supports health and wellness. They helped my husband to be pain-free, significantly increased his range of motion, and improved the entire family's overall health and wellness. This is an amazing organization; we highly recommend the services at Defy Sports Performance and Physiotherapy!"

“We had a great experience at Defy Sports Performance and Physiotherapy. My daughter had some sport-related strains and the therapist worked with her one on one to assess her issues and to created targeted exercises to help resolve them. The facility is bright and comfortable, lots of parking, and really knowledgeable, helpful and friendly staff."
"This place deserves more than 5 stars. Highly recommended!! The staffs are very nice and friendly especially to my physiotherapist 'Danielle'. She is amazing. She did a really great job of my right shoulder which I hurt from snowboarding. I misaligned my collarbone and everything hurts which I could barely raise and move my right arms and shoulder. Thanks to Danielle! Thanks to Defy! You are absolutely awesome!!❤ I am now back to normal with my daily activities."
"Jenny was an absolute dream to work with for my physio treatment. She asks great questions and is incredibly thorough. I always felt comfortable and like she really listened to what I was saying about my body. Everything is tailored to you and your goals. Highly reccomend!"
Pelvic Health Physiotherapy
"I was referred to Joel Dixon for some back and neck pain that has been persisting for several years following several head injuries. I almost resigned myself that it would always be there, after having seen multiple specialists to try to alleviate the pain with no lasting results. Within a few sessions I was almost good-as-new, and am seeing persistent relief! Highly, highly recommend, thanks Joel!"
"Defy Physio exceeded my expectations! I began seeing Julie when I started running a couple years ago and was met with continuous encouragement and practical strategies to address current challenges and prevent future issues. Highly recommend, regardless of where you're at on your health and wellness journey!"
"I have been doing physio with Matt on my ankle which has given me trouble consistently for years. It rolls very easily and I've suffered many sprains over the years. In the last 4 weeks we have massively improved both strength and stability and my ankle hasn't felt as good in years. With Matts help we hit all the goals in our plan and today I started crossfit which is huge for me. Thanks to Matt and Defy for a job well done."
